It’s that time again! Join us as we revisit this day in 1983 on another Off The Chart, with no shortage of obscure, forgotten and half-remembered hits, plus three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s goings-on, a track from a John Peel session broadcast on this day, a jaunt over to the West German chart and the top five singles in full.
- Which ’70s act scored their only number 1 in 1983 but never hit the top 40 again?
- Who released their farewell single but then failed to break up?
- And which American singer won Best British Female at the 1982 BRIT Awards?
